Samurai warriors fought with conviction, honor, and discipline.
Phooey. They have the look of arrogance like any other elite. They murdered whomever the warlords told them too. You could lose your head for meeting
their stare or not bowing low enough at their passing.
I'm with you right here. The one all the way on the right looks like a boisterous, superior jerk.
Samurai were skilled and deadly, and operated by their own code, but their very status of warriors resulted in a giant, inflated ego. Also they were
borderline gangsters in a way. Working for local warlords in intimidation and extortion. Killing whoever they were told to kill. Extracting daily
contributions from people who probably was barely able to contribute with having nothing left for themselves.
A lowly peasant showing even a slight inkling of disrespect or irreverence, even if unintentional, could mean a mean, cruel scolding to remind how
lowly and dirty you are, or a quickly confiscated head.
